Why Did YRF-SRK combo do it? Is JTHG A Bad Film?

there are 11000 single screens in india, apart from 3000 odd multiplex screens. even if 6000 of those are in decent conditions (which is very possible as all 3000 single screens are ‘spick n span’ and all it needs is 3000 decent single screens for two films to releae comfortably without eating into each others screen space and affect business (unfairly). unless one party decides to play dirty. here is how to play mischief.

in mumbai Dadar is a place where ppl will travel to watch a film if its not releasing in, say Nagpada. so all a michief maker has to do is book all screens in dadar while leaving the nagpada screens alone. now the audiences of jab tak hai jaan from nagpada will still travel to dadar to watch it but the car driving, posh apartments residents of dadar wud not drive into the narrow bylanes of nagpada to watch son of sardar. the same example can be applied to bandra/dharavi, andheri/jogeshwari in mumbai or to saket/vasnat kunj vs trilok puri/badarpur border in delhi or across all cities in the country. and thats what yashraj have done. the point is, even if they had released their film evenly, they wud have got the same number of audiences, may be more ( counting those from nagpada who may decide not to commute to dadar for distnace or marginally higher ticket prices in dadar) but YRF has decided to risk it’s own business marginally to sabotage son of sardar deleberately, viciously, and maliciously.

but why are they so despaerate?

the only obvious answer is they are not confident of their product. 1st they tried to browbeat ajay devgan by playing the emotional card indirectly pressurising him through paid media articles to postpone his film as a mark of respect as jab tak hai jaan was yash chopra’s last directorial venture, and later as yash chopra died the pressure was escalated further. but before planning a sabotage of ajay’s film did yashraj forget that son of sardar is also the home production of kajol, ajay’s wife, an industry daughter, the heroine of yashraj’s biggest hit in history DDLJ, from the illustriuous mukherji family of filmistan, daughter of tanuja and the niece of great nutan. even ajay devgan is the son of veteran action director veeru devgan and deserves some emotion, as low as he may be in the ‘emotional food chain’ of bollywood.

But YRF-SRK planned a cold blooded sabotage like any corporate honcho wud, sans any (fake) bollywood emotions becoz they are

1. not confident of the product.
2. srk’s dwindling star power over the last 5 years
3. the genre not being current audience freindly
4. the music of jab tak hai jaan not picking up even as the counry sings ‘rani tu main raja’

i am an ajay devgan fan. i think he is an excellent actor and has conducted himself with a lot of dignity in his 20 years in bollywood as compared to chhichhora, frivolous, megalomaniac, egoistical sharukh khan. so no prizes for guessing which side i want to win. but even if the YRF-SRK combo succeed in their evil designs, it will be just a half victory for them as they have had to use all kind of unfair means and above all the star power of srk’s arch nemesis salman khan to win this battle. after all ‘jab tak hai jaan’ was able to play out this dirty trick on the strength of ek tha tiger.

    Srk Chichora hai toh salman kya hai..?
    Ladkiyon Ko pitne wala BAYLA..
    Chakka ladkiyon pe haath utatha hai saala fattu..
    Chindichor salman apna link Underworld ke Saath rakhta hai.
    Ye wo underworld ke log hai jo India mein Bomb blast kar chuke hai..
    Is bomb blast mein Innocent logo ki jaan gayi hai aur ye khudko ‘Being Human’ kehne wala gundo ka saath dekhar unke paiso see Picture Banata hai..(Chori Chori Chupke Chupke)
    sahi picture ka naam rakha hai jo kuch karta hai Chori Chori Chupke Chupke..
    Aur ‘KHANDAAN’ ne to shapath khayi hai garib ko footpath pe se udane ka..
    Jo Garib footpath pe soyega usko hum apne car se uda denge.. Pehle salman ne kiya, sohail ne kiya aur abhi arbaaz karega..
    Aur baadmein statement denega (in sohail khan’s case) ‘why ths ppl sleep on d footpath?’ baarish mein kuch dikhta nahi hai.. Thoda kam piya kar bhudwe raat mein mumbai ke raston Par ‘Ra*****n’ b dikhegi..
    Black bug ko Shoot karo, media ke saath maarpit karo, ladki ko pito aur phir Being Human ka naara just for publicity..
    Aur phr wohi Being human Charitable trust ke paiso se Mumbai Police ko Kharidlo just to extend the case..
    The only actor in d world i think who has such record of crimes..

      Rockyy, Ladkiyon ko hath uthane ki baat hai to Aish or Somy ali both had DENIED about it http://www.aishwarya-spice.com/interviews/2001-2/steaming-up-2001/ india.blogs.nytimes.com/2012/02/23/from-bollywood-starlet-to-florida-womens-rights-champion/

      to tu kaun hai yeh sab bakwas karne wala aise to mein b kuch b bol sakta hu that srk is chakka.

      Aur underworld se koi link nahin sare pehle sare bollywood stars unki parties mein jate the or jana padta including Shahrukh khan and almost EVERY actor actress of industry.

      Aur chori chori chupke chupke mein salman ne sirf ACTING ki thi usko khud ko paise nahin mile the us picture ke

      par Raone mein to SRK PAISA B kareem morani ka lagaya who is not only arrested in 3g scam but also has big links to underworld jo bomb blast mein karte hai india mein.

      Aur sohail ka driver drive kar ra tha it is proved in court also case is solved agar tujhe aisa hai khud jake police ko bta bjae yahan bakwas karne ke

      And Salman had said he felt bad to know that kis old person ghar se nikal dia tha and she had to sleep in footpath THATS IT iska koi dusra matlab or bakwas mat bana

      Aur bhadwa sharukh khan hai.

      Black buck case or mumbai police tujhe lagta hai salman ne sab kahrida hai phir b case chal rae hai agar tujhe itna sure hai to jaake court mein bta de na yahan par kya bakwas kar ra hai.

      And salman through Being Human has helped and is helping thousands of people daily and if you have any doubt about it go and do some research to know about it instead of bullshitting here.

        Dkha nahi kya video hijde ki tarah behave kiya in front of media..
        Budva sharab peekar gadi chalata hai aur paise se mumbai police ko kharidtha hai..
        Pehle Pran lo fir Naara lagao..
        Criminal hai aur rahega..

          One Ex officer who Himself is charged under many corruptions has made some allegations Without any evidence . so SRK fans like Raashad uff rockyy usko aise bolne lag gaye hai jaise wo prove ho chuka hai. Aise to koi kahega SRK is Hijda chakka he had sex change operation ko kya usko b isi tarah bologe Raashad?

          Vaise isi ips officer ki baat karte hai few months ago This same IPS officer had also made allegations against SRK regarding some land so usko tum maante ho raashad?

            Kya Aryan usi same IPS officer ne SRK kingkonG khan pe b kuch galat illegal aarop lagaye the?

            He also made some allegations against our kingkonG khan few months ago. bilkul b nahin hum uske aarop ko nahin mantey because those are on our KingkonG khan.

            But such big allegations against Salman without any evidence wo ips officer jo har day naye aarop lagata hai naye celebrity pe who himself is charge against corrupt charges uske aise aarop ko aise comment mein bolenge as if they are proved.

    During ett release, there were strong speculations about such a deal signed with exhibitors, but no one was able to confirm such thing. But it is clear now.
    Btw i am no ajay fan or any star fan for that matter.you have excuse of calling me Himesh fan if u r in mood of some fun, i dont mind , i like himesh too now. He is brave man. But don’t forget Truth prevails in the end.

    Because there were just speculations, no proof. But now they have supposedly or at least they have got clear idea about intentions of yrf. You cant trust every media news without any source or confirmation then how could have taken some action spoiling their relationship with such high profile production company. No one expected srk and yrf will stoop to such low levels.
    You sounds like a typical fan…so no more replies.

    This whole article is based on writers hatred for SRK and some media speculation…where is proof and not from SOS PR article …if you don’t have any solid proof then stop writing such biased article…and this is coming from a Salman khan fan who always release his big movies on EID and has created a monopoly , I can also say that Salman does sabotage and does not let other film release on EID…

    Totally Unnecessary article.

    Whether Film is good or bad One would like to get as much screens prints as possible and try their best to give it a wide and best release to their film.

    And if they are doing this anything against SOS that doesn’t mean they are not confident or film is bad. This is bullshit reason. They would obviously try to demolish SOS if its releasing with it.Though i agree that they are doing manipulation for it but that has nothing to do with the film.

    Also if they are not sure of their film and if they know its bad they would never try to give it a wide release. Kyonki usse to naam agy jake aur b naamkhrab hoga specially for srk after Ra-one.

    So in any way this article doesn’t make any sense.

    Danish——just one thing…..

    Don’t about that Dadar thing but…..

    saket/vasnat kunj vs trilok puri/badarpur border in delhi

    are u really know any thing at all——

    bro Saket /Vasant kunj —has Multiplexes like PVR—and DT cinemas—-
    they are giving 55-45 % screen space in favor of JTHJ….

    still 45% is very good…….

    second thing—–trilok puri/badarpur it would benefit SOS more —–
    Any way audience from these places will 100% see SOS ……
    and they don’t have the money to see movie in Pvr or DT where movie Tickets cost any where between—325 to 1000Rs…..

    U must be kidding when you made this Article……
